Wednesday Whisper ~ His Name

All of us have a first and last name and most have a middle name, although I acquired mine as an adult. My illustrator, originally from Brazil, has five last names. I hope she doesn’t have to write that signature often!

When we think about our Creator God, our Heavenly Father, the One True God, clearly many names come to mind. Depending on their experiences with God, characters in the Bible referred to Him differently. The same thing happens to us. Some are comfortable with calling Him ‘Daddy’ or ‘Abba’, others know Him better as their Provider, Helper, Healer, or Defender. When meditating on His character, other names come to mind:  Lover of My Soul, Almighty One, God of Mercy and Grace, Faithful and True. The list lengthens with the additional names for Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Be challenged this year to consider God’s names in striving to know Him better. Whether you are spending time in worship, taking a walk, driving, or sitting in a waiting room, meditate on the names of God that touch your heart. If you wish, go through the alphabet and see how many different names you can think of and then identify your favorites.

“Not to us, O LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory.” (Psalm 115:1a)

To view my list that blossomed into a song, go to my website, http://pointingtheway.live, and find “Sing Out Your Name” under the ‘Song Lyrics’ tab.

 

About Arrow

Hi and welcome! My pen name is Arrow. The word “arrow” intrigues me because it has two meanings that describe my passions. One, it is an instrument used intentionally to reach a target, and two, it shows the way. As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, my goals are to live for Him, lead others to Him, and glorify the Heavenly Father. I pray that the stories, poems, song lyrics, and devotional thoughts I share on this website will always be inspired by the Holy Spirit and aligned with the truths found in God’s Word. My hope is that the words may penetrate your heart and point the way to a closer relationship with the Savior. I look forward to sharing my journey with you. Experiencing what God has in store is bound to be exciting! May you be blessed! ~ Arrow
